On The Trail With Bill Lee

Everywhere, DE ~ Bill Lee, GOP candidate for Governor, has been on the campaign trail from the North to the South, and from East to West in our fine state. The month of July has been a busy one so far, and he started it off by blasting the Administration's veto of the bipartisan Eminent Domain Bill:

"The right to own property is one of the most basic civil rights in our nation. This administration has usurped that right, and endorsed an atmosphere where anyone's property rights can effectively be sold to the highest bidder," said Lee. "The rationale for her veto was flimsy, and the Senate acted in a cowardly fashion in not overturning this travesty."

Lee also took issue with the government threatening paramedic funding to balance their "bloated budget:"

"Inserting a last-minute money grab into the Grant-In-Aid budget is beyond acceptable. For too long, we have governed with only the elected officials' interests at heart, and we have done it in secret and at the last minute. This has got to stop."

And after the DSEA showed their political stripes, the candidate for Governor was quick to respond:

"I sent my children to public schools because Delaware's public education system was once the envy of the nation. Unfortunately, the teachers union has allowed our schools to deteriorate and the endorsement process is a political sham to allow them to choose a Democrat," said Lee. "There is no way Delaware will bring about the change we need if we continue to elect politicians who preserve the status quo. I know we can do better."

And Bill was, as usual, out meeting Delawareans and listening to their concerns.
